        In depth

        Verdict

        Tahitian Prince won at Doncaster on his penultimate start but remains 7lb higher while Widaad’s better effort at Wolverhampton came in lowly Class 6 company. It was heavy going when Hunni scored over track and trip back in October and Idoapologise also returns to action having won at Beverley in September. GLENN COCO (NAP) has been in good form on the all-weather before landing this in 2019. He attempts to repeat that success racing off a 6lb lower mark and Stuart Williams’ grey gets the vote. Biggles debuts on Turf for his handicap debut with a decent apprentice taking 5lb off his back and is another to consider.
